How you feel about yourself affects your relationships, your confidence, and your wellbeing. Missing teeth can play a large part in your self-esteem, as well as your overall health.

No one should have to feel self-conscious about their smile or their ability to eat certain foods. Thanks to dental implants, thousands of people are looking better than ever and enjoying foods they have not been able to eat in years!

When considering dental implants, ask yourself these questions:

  • Are you embarrassed by the appearance of your teeth when you smile?
  • Do you experience discomfort or inconvenience due to removable partials or dentures?
  • Are you satisfied with your ability to eat?
  • Do you suffer from tooth pain?
  • Loosening teeth?
  • Has tooth loss has affected your quality of your life?

 

Whether you are missing a single tooth or many teeth, dental implants may be an option for you. Implants have the look, feel and function of natural teeth. They are the most attractive, the most natural, and the most comfortable replacements for missing teeth. Implants can replace teeth that have been missing since birth, or teeth that have been lost due to gum disease, infection, trauma, or decay. They can also dramatically increase the stability of dentures.

Dental implants help distribute chewing forces throughout the jawbone and minimize the erosion of the jawbone that normally occurs when teeth are lost. This bone retention is important since bone loss can affect the ability to chew and speak… and can even change the look of your face!

Many patients who have received dental implants follow up to let us know about significant improvement in the quality of their lives. Patients feel confident and comfortable eating in public. They can smile in family photos. They don’t dread looking in the mirror.
